Present Journey

We still live in our past, didn't we? And this has surely impacted our present. We read quotes that states of moving on, living your present and forgetting about past, we read it, give it a thought and move on, not from our past but actually from the quote we read and the thought we had.
The time we think about our past happenings our mind passes through a memory lane which is so tempting that we are unknowingly forced to remember those days, people we were connected to and all the sweet memories with a pinch of salt on it. Some of our past happenings are so lovely that we miss them now and then we waste our time thinking of the ways to live them again conscious of it's impossibility. Rather than thinking of living in present and making new memories we dwell in the old ones. The fascination is so strong that we forget our true belonging.
But is that how a life is lived? Worrying about the mistakes of past and uncertainty of future? A moment once gone is gone forever. Yes, we made memories and yes they are to be remembered.
It doesn't mean we have to dwell there, even if you made mistakes in your past worrying in future doesn't makes sense, rather we should think of the ways we can correct them in our present and the coming future but again future is uncertain and what's certain is that very moment you are alive in. Even the very next moment is unknown. So forget about what happened in your past. Take your bag full of memories some bitter some sweet to the very moment you belong.

You learnt a lesson, keep that. It will help you avoid the same mistake.
You lost friends, remember them. They will help you in identifying your true friends.
You had some best days, love them. They will make you see the brightest side.
There's nothing you left in past and there's nothing you can take to future. Memories will be there forever inside you every day every time you live. But being able to live with them is what we need to learn. Dwelling there is what we need to stop.
Is that too hard then give it a thought, a serious one, cherish those memories, take a deep breath and be happy in the moment you are in. You had your best days, so that you can be reminded by God of all the love,happiness and blessings he has included in your life.
And you had some worst days, so that you can emerge stronger than before. Since nothing in this life is constant.
What you have in your hand now is the time you are alive in, make it worth remembering, let your present journey be so beautiful, full of excitement, amazement, excellence that you are left with no regrets in your future, a journey full of adventures and topsy turvy that guarantee you a wonderful destination, more than what you expected.

Today's Motivation Mantra - Anytime when you think of your past, don't let it affect you, let it make you learn, let it make you smile, let it remind you of the people some bad some good, some lost some found, let it make you stronger. A struggle can't be only from outer sources, an inner force is what it all needs.
Be motivated
Keep motivating

What If

This is what we ask ourselves everytime. Before or after, while doing anything or while making a decision. It automatically pops up in our head -
I wanna start a new job (yay!) but What if it doesn't work well?
I don't wanna do this anymore, What if others will question me?
Yes there are times when a wise decision making needs all what ifs or what nots. But that doesn't mean every single and silly things in your life needs most of your brain's attention. It is not necessary to ask this question to yourself at every single step.
I wanna dance. Should I? What If??
I wanna sing. What If people don't like.
I wanna wear this dress. Oh it's so pretty but little shorter than my usual dresses. Should I wear it? What If?? And our continuous questionnaire goes on. Come on! These things aren't worth whole of your attention. Just stop behaving like a question paper. Make a decision, be fine with it and enjoy that very moment.
You wanna visit that party, don't give a second thought, go, go out, enjoy, dress as you like whether it's short or it's long, dance even if you are bad at it, sing with bad throat, do the job that makes you happy, make a decision which involves your heart but don't question yourself for being what you are and to do what you want to. And if someone question you about it, don't give a damn. It's your life, your decision and not their's.

Today's Motivation Mantra - If you are following your heart, don't engage your mind. Stop getting into this whirlpool of "What Ifs". It leads no where. Just live upto your decisions and make them happen.

Inside Out

There's a thing that we all do - We Pretend.Whether it's in front of our parents, our friends or whomsoever we meet. At times even I'm confused by the way I act or behave in a situation which never demanded that. And it is not a one person thing, we all somewhere at some point face this. So do we lack confidence or do we underestimate ourselves?
What we do is we pretend to be someone else. We meet some persons and we try to be impressive in front of them. This even happens to me, my hand shakes and my head shivers. On due analysis of the situation I found that it wasn't due to lack of confidence or something like that. It was because at some point I tried to be the one I wasn't.
This usually happens because we become conscious to other person's expressions. We see ourselves from that person's point of view. And thus we behave differently. This could sometimes put all our efforts in vain.
Being yourself is not hard, it's all about being REAL and stop pretending. Yes there are times when it's not easy but if you are what you are and you feel free to show it to the world no one can ever stop you from becoming the best. Since you would be the one of your kind.
Because between What people think about who you are and What you portrays them. There's someone hiding, Someone The Real You. So If you are here to impress people then better know that people will criticize you anyway. Have guts and face them with what u really are. Someone The Real You.

Today's Motivation Mantra - It gets harder and complicated if you try to pretend in every situation. It's better to face the world with what you really are rather than portraying them a different image. Be Yourself.

Quitting vs. Starting Over

There has always been a confusion when you have to choose between continuing a job,or a relationship or something like that or you just don't want it anymore. And making a decision has never been so easy.
We do think of quitting some times when the things don't work according to us anymore and then we think of all its and buts, we think of what people would say, we think of all stupid things like this. But let me tell you that there's always a difference between choosing to quit and starting over again.
Quitting is easy, maintaining it is the hardest part. Is it really so?
You don't have a passion for your job and still you are doing it, you don't wanna be with someone who treats you badly and still you are looking for the ways to be with them, you don't like your job and still you do that job day and night with no pleasure. And then you say you should NEVER QUIT.
I find that illogical. I call it an act of coward. Since you are afraid to take a step beyond that and out of the people's fear, So you continue to be there.And you think it's like being courageous.
Not really, sometimes when you choose to be out of the things that don't give you pleasure anymore, that don't teach you new things everyday anymore, the things you don't have that die hard passion for. You should leave them right there and it won't be called as Quitting, it would be a new start.
And may be one day, just one day when you wake up in the morning happy and with all that passion to learn, to do your job, to love things and people around you. You would know that making a decision was never wrong, correctly it was never right then.

Today's Motivation Mantra - Starting over again has never been so easy neither quitting a job is. If you lack passion and motivation to do your job you know it's going wrong somewhere and that's a point where making a decision is must.

The First Time

There's always a moment when you have to confront a situation, or someone for the first time. Like I'm here writing this. I do it often but this is different.
 Not to mention all the planning we do, all the ways we search for so that we could make an impression or just to start well. As it's said "the first impression is the last impression".
So have you ever thought why it goes wrong even when you did a lot of planning or you searched for the best way out of all. Where does it all go wrong?
Well! No where. You can still be the best even when it didn't work out in the first time, you can still succeed even when you failed in the first one, you can get over the situation even when what you thought for the first time was not so effective. What are you waiting for - A Miracle, that happens only in fairytale.
They all say no one's going to come to save you, only you can. And that's right. Your first time didn't went right, fine. Give it an another try. Nobody's going to ask you how you started but everyone's gonna see how you ended. So here's it,

Today's Motivation Mantra - It's not that first impression is always the last one. It's not what you lost in the first time but it's always what you gained at the end and how well you ended it.
